Follow these simple steps to get involved: 

  • Enter one of the promo codes below in the Uber app — you can only enter one code, so choose wisely!

  • Between now and September 28, 2014, ride for your cause!

  • For every trip you complete, we will donate $1 to the charity of your choice (not valid on uberTAXI)


On October 1, we will donate an additional $10,000 to the charity that racks up the most rides. The more you ride, and the more friends you recruit to your cause, the better the chances are that your charity will receive the bonus funds.
